...for the support
The Juneau Jumpers would like to thank the community of Juneau for your wonderful support of our annual raffle. The raffle is our main fund raising event, which helps the jumpers go to competitions and camps. Thank you to Bullwinkles for the many years of support. Thank you to Alaska Airlines for the first prize donation of two round-trip tickets, Taku Glacier Lodge and Wings of Alaska for the second prize of a Taku Glacier Lodge salmon feast with glacier flight seeing tour for two, Temsco Helicopters for the third prize of a Mendenhall glacier tour for two, and The White Pass and Yukon Route Railway for the fourth prize of a summit excursion for two. The drawing was held on May 3 at the Glacier Valley gym during the End of the Year Show. This year's prize winners are Rebecca Moorman winning the Alaska Airlines tickets, Devin Jones winning the Taku Lodge trip, Nathan Zahnd winning the Temsco glacier tour, and Mary Robidoux winning the railway summit excursion. The Juneau Jumpers are very appreciative of the support from this community.
...for all the help.
April was Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month and I would like to thank the people who made it possible here in Juneau.
First, the people who put pins on the pamphlets: Girl Scout Junior Troop No. 39 led by Andrea Peterson, Girl Scout Brownie Junior Troop No. 33 led by Maggie Stumme, Jane Gendron, Claudette Curtis, Laurie Sica and Jody Lown.
Next the businesses that gave me counter space to display the pamphlets,pins and donation jars were the Fiddlehead Restaurant, Silverbow Bagels and Restaurant, El Sombrero, Capitol Office Supplies, Galligaskins, Heritage Coffee, Downtown Tesoro, Foodland Drug, Downtown Racquet Club, J and J Deli, Valley Tesoro, Copy Works, Susan's Hallmark, Thundermountain Arts and Crafts, Belle's, Scentiments, Valley Medical Care, Bartlett Hospital, Dr. Neyhart's office and Glacier Pediatrics. Thanks to Nugget Mall for the window space for a display dealing with child abuse.
I would also like to thank Chris Burns of KINY, who did two shows on different aspects of child abuse during April. I would like to thank Derek Peterson, who did the show about the prevention of child abuse by building assets into kids. I would like to thank Sharon Fleming (DFYS), Sgt. John Boltjes (Juneau Police Department) and Rosemary Hagevig (S.A.F.E. - child advocacy center) who did a show about what happens after a report of abuse is made.
I also want to thank the Juneau Empire. Child abuse affects our society as a whole, not just its victim. Education is a big part of stopping the cycle of child abuse. Since child abuse is promoted by silence and ignorance, thank you for helping us educate people.
I want to thank the people of Juneau who wore mint green pins to show their support for stopping child abuse. I would like those who showed through their donations that preventing child abuse is an issue that is important to them. Juneau truly is a town with a big heart.
I look forward to working with all of you next year.

Juneau Gun Club would like to thank everyone who participated in the fifth Annual Legislative Shoot co-sponsored by SuperBear/Family Grocers and Juneau Gun Club. The weather and the food were excellent. Everybody had a good time. This year the range management was done by the new cowboy action shooting club, the Juneau Gold Miners Militia, who showed up in their cowboy gear.
The winning team was the Republican Rockers, made up of CBJ Assembly Member Dale Anderson, and legislative aides Matt Grill and Mike Tibbles. We had 11 teams this year, down from last year due to the lateness in the session. More than 30 shooters from the Alaska Legislature shot centerfire pistols at steel action-pistol targets, .22 rimfire rifles at gallery targets, and 16-yard tarp.
